    5'4" roughly, 110 pounds, and I ride a 15.1hh Anglo Arab - he is pretty chunky though. I like them anywhere from a solid (cob type) 13hh upwards and LOVE them around 16hh. I ride jumpers and playing around with the idea of getting into eventing.

    The little miss is about 13.2 at 11 months and hopefully will be 15hh but I think it'll be pushing it. But if she has much of her sire's genetics she will be solid, so I won't have a problem.

    I look good on anything from a 13.3 welsh cob to a 16.1 solid built TB and I will admit that TB was about the tallest I've ridden. I have REALLY long legs so it can be hard to find a horse that really takes up as much of my leg as I would like. Monty does at a push, I would love another hand or so of height on him, but he's not REALLY chunky, just sort of medium... I am used to relatively slender horses so he is chunky in my eyes.

    I'm 5'9" and Houdini is a 15.1 hh QH. That's us at left. I know a lot of people would consider him short for me - but my first horse was 14.0!

    Oh, Mel, just do what I did - buy some really long stirrup leathers and drop the near side one down as low as it'll go. Then once you're in the saddle hoist it up after you.

    I'm 5'7" and normally ride a 15.2h gelding. Have ridden a 13h pony for fun, was going to show her :p and hopefully going to buy a 16.1h mare :)

    I normally ride english, and fit perfectly on the first horse. (He's in my avatar)
